Free Shipping from SanMar Through The PSST Program

Big Bear and SanMar Are Teaming Up to Save You Money!Sign Up for PSST (form opens in new window)

In cooperation with SanMar, the nation's premier supplier of wholesale apparel and accessories, Big Bear participates in Pack Separately. Ship Together., a program that allows us to streamline our processes for better efficiency.  As a result, we're able to pass along the savings to you with some exceptional benefits.

Quick Facts

  • The cutoff time to include an order in any day's PSST shipment is 1PM SanMar warehouse time
  • SanMar will hold orders and ship to Big Bear via ground freight Monday to Friday, 5 business days a week 

To get started with the PSST Program now, please complete this form or call 716-836-6300, option 1.

The Benefits

Free Shipping from SanMar to Big Bear on Most Orders

Because we're able to receive all of our SanMar orders in bulk, we can pass along the shipping savings to you.  Just make sure to select the PSST ship method when ordering from SanMar, whether online or by phone.  SanMar will hold orders and ship via ground freight to Big Bear Monday to Friday, 5 business days a week.  If you have a time-sensitive order that needs to ship right away, you'll still have the option to ship outside of the PSST program.

  Individually Packed Purchase Orders

The heart of the program - packing purchase orders individually - eliminates the time and energy usually required to unpack and break out orders when they arrive at Big Bear's facility, potentially reducing our receiving time!

Exclusive Spoilage Coverage Plan

Now, if an item gets damaged during embellishment, you don't have to worry.  Big Bear works directly with SanMar, on your behalf, to receive credit or reduced rates on replacement product.  You'll still need to tell us if you'd like the order held for replacements or if we should ship what we have decorated and complete the replacements separately.

 Reduced Restocking Fees

Sometimes product has to be returned to SanMar.  Now, when that happens, you can minimize or eliminate the extra costs associated with restocking.

Discounted Spec Samples

When a picture isn't enough, a sample is the perfect option!  Through Big Bear you can now get decorated SanMar samples at a discount - available on brands like Nike Golf, Columbia, OGIO, and other private label brands.

 A Single Point of Contact for Many Issues

Have a question about damages or incorrect orders?  Now you don't have to call both Big Bear and SanMar in order to get an answer!  Instead, Big Bear will be able to work directly with SanMar to resolve these issues on your behalf.

How It Works

After contacting Big Bear to sign up for participation in this program you simply:

  1. Buy your quality blanks from SanMar and have them drop-shipped to us via the PSST ship method
  2. Submit your decoration PO to Big Bear, indicating that your blanks will arrive via PSST
  3. Send us your artwork or DST files
  4. Review and approve your sew out
  5. Review and approve your Job Approval Form
  6. Receive your final decorated product from us or let us drop-ship it directly to your customer
